Agreed with above poster, and the quote at the top couldn't be more wrong. Have you been to the games? The only game I made it to this year was the Denver game, and was shocked at the number of orange jerseys. And this is for a team on the other side of the country, and I doubt that many people have come to Charlotte from Denver.


It's only gonna get worse unfortunately. Pats, Giants, and Jets games will be 50-50 or worse in the stands. This franchise and what's left of the fanbase can't stand 4 more years of submediocre football.

Carolina was able to keep some of the fan base with the Newton draft, but following the JR lockout debacle, a couple mediocre seasons and Marty Hurney screwing the team's financial situation for another 3 years, I think the Panthers are right on the brink, if not already going over the edge, of losing their fan base. Keep seeing more and more opposing teams' fans in the stadium? Having a hard time recognizing anyone sitting around you at every home game?

Saying that, when I went to see Panthers at Chargers I didn't feel like an outsider. Surprised to see just how many Panther's fans there were so far from S.C. Granted, we're one of the lesser supported teams but if you liked the Panther's at one point I don't see people jumping ship right now.

There may be more fans where you are than in SC, period.

But you aren't local and, therefore, your perspective is clouded...by about 2500 miles. The reality is the Panthers are nearly as relevant as the Bobcats... and the opinion of the vast majority of the sports fans in this area is "Why pay any attention to a perennial loser when I can watch Duke or UNC basketball and ACC football is getting better every year?"

One thing that hopefully will be a positive with Gettleman's strategy of signing vets to a 1 year deal, is if those guys want to get paid again next year, they have to perform.

The saddest part about that image is that outside of the Cardinals, Raiders, and Rams: All the other teams on the last two lines have experienced the post season over the last 2 or 3 years.

Just goes to show how truly poor this franchise has been run since the Arizona playoff debacle. At least teams like the Saints, Steelers, Falcons, Niners, Giants, and Texans can look at thier money as being well spent.

how can you summarize something that didn't happen besides saying it didn't happen?

Man it's just incredible how bad Marty hurney fuged us. How can one man be so bad at his job?

Yet there were still people on here defending him to the end. Amazing.

Depressing to see how much money the Patriots have, and how they are consistently good, and always have tons of draft pics.
